2nd Feb.   On a slightly cold and overcast day, but the good golf played by the 8 teams brought out the sun towards the end. Scoring was great, with 61 points in first place were John Kirwan, Mick Keely, Seanie Gleeson, and Seamus Ryan. In Second Place with 60 points were Michael Cahill, Pat O’Connell, and Jim Casey and in Third place with 58 points were Tom McGrath, Liam Leahy, Jim Gilmartin, and Tom Hogan.

9th. Feb. Well, it was proved today that Templemore Seniors are totally indomitable, even a frozen course we just waited it out and finally the 9 teams got out to play two hours late at 12:00.  And the scores returned reflected the good conditions that then prevailed. In First Place with 59 points were Pat O’Connell, John Mullally and a return after nearly a year out is our bionic Tony O’Toole. It was close in second place separated by countback with 58 points Seamus Bourke, John Galvin, Michael Maher, and Pascal Whelan. Third also with 58 points John Kirwan, George Collins, Les Mason, and Colm Dooley. Well done all.
